Spoils: Extraordinary Harvest
Director: Alex Mallis
Every evening, long after rush hour, a series of dumpsters are rolled out onto the sidewalks in front of a large grocery store in Brooklyn, NY. A small crowd materializes to await a bounty of discarded food. As employees passively wheel out containers of expired, nearly expired, blemished, dented, smushed, or seemingly perfect edibles, the gleaners rummage through clear plastic bags and often salvage enough food to last a week or more. The foodstuffs can be found on the shelves of the supermarket just hours before. And if not for the dumpster divers, these “spoils” are destined for a landfill.
